SALISBURY – Generally, September is a slow month for consumer gardening questions, but Cooperative Extension still receives a variety of gardening questions, especially with the rainy weather. Below are a few inquiries from homeowners that some of you may have pondered.
Q: There are quite a few shiny black wasps hovering over my lawn. What are these wasps doing? Are they dangerous; will they sting?
Q: I cannot get my spinach to germinate in the garden. I have no problem with turnips or collard greens. I planted them a few weeks ago and it seems like a few are trying to germinate now. What did I do wrong?

Q: I have this yellow-brown growth that has appeared in my mulch. What is this and how do I control it?

Q: Is now the best time to kill Bermuda grass?
